Tracey Turner is a contemporary abstract painter and textile artist based in the Cotswolds. Her passionate relationship with textiles evolved from a practical curiosity to follow a much more artistic path. As her family’s demands on her time decreased Turner challenged herself to learn new techniques and mediums, studying at Cheltenham School of Fine Art, unleashing a ferocious appetite to put paint to canvas – which finds her rarely out of her studio.
Now working mainly in acrylic and oil, Turner’s work is a bold and emotional collection of organic shapes, growing and moving to form a cohesive conclusion. Fearless in her approach to working both on a large and small scale, she is inspired by nature’s textures and muted colours. Her floral abstracts strive to find an elegance and charm in imperfection and ageing as she focuses on flowers after full bloom, looking to push past the obvious perceptions of beauty.
